Are leftists, not Muslims, burning cars in Germany?

Yesterday I said that the rash of car-burnings in Berlin, the source of which the New York Times found so mysterious, seemed to be work of Muslims, based on the familiar Muslim car-burnings in France. Today a reader quotes reports from news sources less constricted than the Times indicating that the German arsonists may be leftists protesting wealth and greens protesting the internal combustion engine.

In the entry on “jihadism,” see Daniel S.’s argument that “jihadist” is the wrong term for our enemies, with which I partly agree, partly disagree. Then see the exchange between Kilroy M. and me on whether people in the West even know that there is such a thing as jihad.
